Can you eat just one cookie? Does the thought of ice cream start you craving it? Do you feel you just can’t stop when you start eating sweets or salty snacks?
Many of us react to certain types of foods with addictive-type behaviors. So we try to completely eliminate these foods from our meals and snacks. But then deprivation sets in, causing us to overeat them even more. And feel guilty and defeated in the process.
Can you overcome addictive-type behaviors around food?
Managing Food Addictions
At Green Mountain at Fox Run, we help you:
- Explore the reasons for addictive-type behaviors that are often labeled as food addictions. Sometimes they’re more a matter of how we eat, rather than what we eat.
- Consider the differences in brain reward circuitry that may trigger addictive patterns with food and understand how to manage these reactions.
- Practice, if you want, eating “scary” foods in controlled portions in our “safe” environment, to determine whether your reactions to the foods can potentially change, so that you can eat them in a way that supports health and healthy weights.
Over the almost 40 years we’ve been helping women with our non-diet healthy weight loss program, we’ve worked with many women who believe they are addicted to food. We’ve helped them find peace with food, learning how to eat previously-feared foods, or how to live free of feelings of deprivation if they choose not to eat them.
